10 RETRENCHED AT EURO RSCG SYDNEY
Brendan Tansey, the new CEO of Euro RSCG Sydney who replaced Glen Fraser over the Christmas break, has announced the decision to "move forward with ten less staff at the agency."
Those leaving the agency are a cross section of staff from the production, creative and digital areas, including various freelance staff.
Says Tansey: “Tom Moult and I have spent the past few weeks looking carefully at the business, and decided to run a leaner, tighter agency at this moment in time. However there are opportunities as we move forward to seek out the best people to complement that talent in all areas of the agency.
“New business has been thin on the ground at Euro RSCG of late, but that is about to change, in fact it is already changing. We have just won a significant new piece of business from existing client 3M, which was won following a competitive three-way pitch. There are four more wins we will be announcing within the next two weeks,” he added.
Tansey (pictured here after the infamous 'AdMan Overboard Affair' at the Euro RSCG Trade Press Big Day Out late last year)has worked with Euro RSCG for fourteen years. In 1995 he set up Euro RSCG Interactive, and on four occasions they were named winner of Interactive Agency of the Year. Following a six year stint at Euro RSCG’s New York and London offices, he returned to Australia in July 2005 to launch and run Euro RSCG 4D.
